Thought I would log on earlier today, busy sitting here "dreaming" doing work stuff, and thought I would see who was awake.

Jeff I'm a loggie, supply mustering. Alice Springs? Must be hard on the paintwork, Canberra on the other hand is very mild on the cars. Ours are always garaged and their paint is holding up very well, especially considering their ages, 51, 42, 40 and a young and spritely 11 year old, and most of them have all been here in Canberra. None have had a respray, and their paintwork is still looking good.

The "woman" in the sweater, mmm let me think, no not real, and the whole idea of rings on the "bits" sounds bloody painful.

Last week of the school holidays, thank god, they all go back to school and University next week. Cooked lovely scones for lunch today for them all, herb, ham and cheese and plain with heaps of cream, all gone. Sent a photo to the hubby who is at work to show him what he is missing out on, and he said they can't possibly be mine they looked too good. Bloody cheek!!

Yep, it was that perfect temp for a drive.
A few nice cars.
Two 964 RS, both in black.
These are rare in Australia.

Very - oxidizing, pealing/blistering clearcoat, etc. Cars are under cover as much as possible. Up side is that they'll never rust.

This aging thing is a PIA. I wish my eyesight was what it was just a few years ago
0.002" parts are getting real small to see these days.

Must be time for a new prescription.

Hey, I'm still at work. It's not beer o'clock for another hour.

Actually got a dilemma today....do I change out my cam belt while it's a cooler day (35C), or pick more grout out between the tiles in my ensuit shower (discovered I really hate this regrouting job - but not willing to pay someone to do it) while it's cooler, or seal a leak on my carport roof before it rains next (I think I'm on borrowed time here) while it's cooler, or veg out with a beer and put it all off until the weekend?

I suppose I could do any of them and still have a beer going

new high score on the panels yesterday, 9.67kwh throughout the day.
and when i now read out the invertor, i tells me that isn't even the max of what is possible this time of year, because 3 days ago , i had a 2.2kw peak at 13h40, wheras yesterday the peak was 1.83... I'm missing out on a .3 kw peak.

And it makes sense, we had news reports of very clear weather (and frost), but also about fine dust polution wofting over from Poland and Germany these last days.


Maybe today the dust will have blown over, leaving just the clear skies.. It's all so exiting !!


Anyway, more exiting, is that my meter is running backwards, and on a day that i'm not home, with 9.6 kwh production,
it undid quite some of the use i had racked up when the sun was not around...
The electrical company will be making up a bill in march, so ideally the panels will have "undone" the stuff that's on the counter now..

Vegging out with the bee'ah appears to be the winner.

Cheers Dave, Vas, Stijn
